i'm sorry if i disappeared for so many months, but i can't find a reason to be here at the moment.
i'm in a appearent creative stagnation, i'm not taking any photo, so i have nothing to upload and other people's stuff makes me envious
i currently hate digital cameras, i have no money for polaroid film and i can't see the point of shooting 35mm when i can't develop it myself.
things will change during the fall, because i'm moving to bari (again!), where it's damn hard to find darkroom classes, but i'm going to take them anyways, even though they end at late night and this means that i'll be exposed to the risk of being gunshot. bari is not the safest place for a woman who has to walk alone at night, indeed, but i don't care because i can't stand this lack of photography in my life anymore. without a darkroom i can't make none of the artistic projects i have in mind.
i'm pretty happy and satisfied, mostly because i see that things are getting better day by day, but the road is still long. the only bad news is that my cute little momotaro died in april and i deeply, deeply miss him. he was playing in the garden, having a lot of fun, when he had a heart attack.
the good news is that i'm get incredibilly social lately... i even go out at night with my friends, sometimes!
political activism is the best thing ever.
i'm going to crochet school. i know it sounds like something good for a spinster, but it's great. you should see how wonderful is the pig-shaped purse i'm making!
i cut my hair short.
i threw away all my make up and i decided that i won't put that stuff on my face anymore.
wait, maybe i aleady told you these hair and make up things, i don't remember.
i'm going to get more photos of people. both of the ones around me and of the strangers i find in the street. i will leave the most conceptual stuff to polaroids.
I'm gonna buy a holga and a polaroid packfilm camera. i'm broke, but i don't care.you know, there have been so many little problems that stopped my will of taking photos, but i decided that i don't care anymore.
i'm still single, and sometimes i even like it.
so i'm going back to bari. not that i like it, but it's better than being here and fighting all the time with my mother, who's becoming really annoying and respectless. going back to rome would really kill me, so i have no other choice.
then i still have a lot of love for my studies, so i can't wait to go back to university. i have a lot to learn!
i decided that i'm going to get involved in the university politics. it's a good way to get to know people, if i choose the usual isolation i will get sick of bari very soon. being so close to home, i would take a train to come back to gravina on thurstday rather than taking it on friday, so i have to find something that can be able to make me want to stay there. maybe i'm goinjg to be so brave and so social that i'm going to share a flat with other students, instead of living alone. yeah, it scares me, but i think i'm going to try.
then, i have a link for you www.freekenneth.com .
i'm writing a death row inmate, who, like kenneth, is a memeber of the d.r.i.v.e. movement www.drivemovement.org . kenneth is innocent and he's going to be murdered in a few days so, please, sing petitions, send letters and faxes to the texas governor to save his life.
i hope everyone is fine, see you soon!
